I joined a 'Hackerspace' last October. https://tampahackerspace.com/ They have a great wood shop, but didn't have a router table. When I asked about it, they said they were just waiting for someone to volunteer to build one. So, their money (about $600), their shop, my time. I started in January and worked about two hours every Friday. I used a set of plans from crestonwood.com (Note: when I just tried to access the site my blocker said it had a trojan, so use caution.) The plans start out well enough, but toward the end there are a lot of errors. I still need to build the small drawers that go on each side, but it is fully operational.
Made with recycled 2×6 teak decking boards tongue and grove tiger wood flooring found in dumpster these things are heavy duty and weight about 40lbs each very stable thru they play a little faster than normal boards great boards to look and play on.
Made another scrapwood end grain end table with a large piece of steel in the front that is powder coated green. The legs are tapered, I have 2 coffee epoxy butterflies as inlays in the top and the whole base is on a 7 degree tilt.
